CTA Kicks Off March Reading Madness

CTA kicked off its March reading madness in style with a visit from the Davenport University Men’s basketball team.  The players brought their favorite books and spent time reading in each K-5 classroom.  “ It really was a neat thing to see the students interact with the basketball team. They were just amazed at how tall they were, and the team was great with them. Everyone had a blast,” explained Assistant Principal Carrie Paddock. The March Reading Madness is a bracket style reading tournament where the class that reads the most minutes outside of school moves on in the competition.  The results of the first week have been phenomenal.  In total the Kindergarten through 7th grade class read 21,120 minutes last week.  The leading class was the sixth grade class with 4,034 minutes read.  In second place were the 1st graders who came through with 3,301 minutes read.  The challenge was laid down by Mr. Oldebekking, Dean of Students, at the Monday meeting to reach 22,000 minutes for the week.  The competition runs parallel with the NCAA basketball tournament, and the CTA reading champion will be crowned in the coming weeks.

CTA Girls Baskteball Sponsors Euchre Tournament to Help Our Own

CTA-Euchre

On January 31st a house fire totally destroyed the home of a CTA family.  The family lost their home and almost all of the family’s possessions.  In keeping with our “CTA Family Values” we wanted to come together to help this family in their time of need.  The girls’ basketball team rallied together right away to help their teammates get new shoes and new gear.  PE teacher and varsity women’s basketball coach, Ryan Krombeen, organized a euchre tournament to help raise money for the family.  The euchre tournament was held on Saturday February 8th at the TGIF on Alpine Avenue.  Twenty people competed in the euchre tournament.  The students and staff that participated in the euchre tournament were Hunter George, Dani George, Analiese VanEnk, James Hoftstra, Mrs. Terpstra, Mrs. Honeysett, Mrs. and Mr. Krombeen and Mr. George.  James Hoftstra was partnered with his father and they made it all the way through the bracket to the finals.  They ended up losing in the finals but they put up a good battle. “I was really happy with the turn out and the excitement shown by the participants.  It was great to see CTA families coming together to help support one of their own,” Mr. Krombeen commented.
